Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup pecan halves
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 romaine hearts, torn (about 6 cups)
  • 2 ripe pears, thinly sliced or chopped (about 3/4 cup)
  • 5 ounces smoked blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 4 thinly sliced green onions (about 1/2 cup)

Method

Step 1

Cook the sugar and pecans in a small skillet over medium, 5 to 7 minutes or until the sugar has caramelized. Spread the pecans in a single layer on lightly greased wax paper on a large baking sheet. Let them cool completely and then chop into 1/2-inch pieces.

Step 2

Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, Dijon, garlic, salt, sugar, and pepper in a small bowl.

Step 3

Layer the lettuce, pears, cheese, avocado, and green onions on a large serving platter. Drizzle with the desired amount of dressing, and top with the pecans.
